    Hello fellow BHW members and welcome to my journey thread!

    I go by the username BigHomie and I'm a proud and new member of BHW! I've never done any IM before so this will be very exciting for me. Since I joined BHW I've been doind a lot of non-stop reading and I think that I have a pretty good grasp over the method that I'll be using. I'll be doing Youtube + CPA for starters since it seems like the most basic but yet profitable area for a newbie like me to start in. I've also been reading a lot of threads with general tips for beginners(My favorite one was the thread started by SteelBalls - "Stupidity and Genius").

    I've also learned one important thing from past life experiences that I'd like to share here. When I first started working out, I spent days, weeks and even months looking for the "best" workout schedule for optimal gains.
    I've spent money on dumb products like gainers and pre-workouts that all promised better results, but nothing ever worked for me. So one day I decided to stick to the most basic workout plan that I could find that has worked for many other in the past. Now one year later, I can clearly see the results of my efforts and it feels great! So the moral of the story is, don't spend to much time looking for the golden "method". Find something that has been proven to work for others and try it over and over until it works for you! :D

    So I'm basically starting this thread today because I feel like a journey thread will keep me on track of my goal, organized and focused. When reading trough this section of BHW I've seen a lot of unfinished threads where the OP has given up, which is really unfortunate. But I'm determined to reach my goal and I will definitely not give up! F!#* that!

    My Goal
    My goal is really to be able to live comfortable and do things that I enjoy without having to worry about money. But that goal is pretty abstract so I'll set my goal to about $10000 dollars a month!
    $10000 dollars a month seems a little bit far fetched to me right now because I've never even made $1 before with IM. But dream big or go home, right? :D Also, by the end of next month I want to be able to buy a Macbook Air for my studies and etc... So I guess that's the first target that I'll be shooting down.

    DA GAME PLAN

    • I'm going to stick to a simple Youtube + CPA method until I start seeing results.
    • I'll be using social exchange websites for likes, comments and etc.
    • Getaccounts and Viralsocial will both be used for views
    • Some private proxies for YT accounts
    • I've only got about $50 to invest, so we'll see how this all works out.
    • Gucci mane's and Chief Keef's music to keep me on my grind. xD

    What have I done today?

    • I've applied to AWM
    • Found a saturated niche that I'll be ranking
    • Chosen a couple of good keywords
    • Spent some time playing around with Blogger(Blog is now up and running)
    • Made a fake generator to that I'll show in my video
    • Recorded some footage for my niche (Will upload the video tomorrow since I still have to do the voice over)
    • Bought 10 proxies from SquidProxies

    Stats
    Spent: $16.80
    Revenue: $0
    Profit: $0

    Wish me luck!

    // The Big Homie

    Haha, yep that's the thread! I couldn't link it due to me being a new member. And thanks for the support bruh!

    Thanks for reading my thread guys, I really appreciate it :D

    Since winter is coming I'll have nothing to do during the days (except for the occasional weekend party ofc) so I'll be able to work everyday! Hopefully I'll see results.

    How high is your ceiling? Low, Standard or High?

    And what you going to be stacking to the ceiling? 10's, 20's, 50' or 100's?

    Thanks :]

    Haha! Nah man, I don't really like Drake :p Btw I'm not able to answer PM's because I have less than 15 posts. But to answer your question, I joined Adworkmedia.

    My ceiling is pretty high tbh. Which means that I'll have room for a lot of paper stacks.

    Thank you for subbing Bartosimpsonio!

    Bingo, you got it right! I'll be making 10k a month by hoarding thousands of newspapers! ;)

    I'm currently about to upload my video but I'm kind of phasing a dilemma. I've read that if Google bans my Youtube account they will also ban my Blogger account, unless I create to separate gmail accounts for the two. So my question is should I try to use Wordpress instead? Because it feels unnecessary to create 2 gmail accounts just for one niche.

    Ps. The blog will only be used as a landing page.

    Personally i prefer wordpress with multiple niches on one domain. long tail keywords in the post title. If your vid get banned at least you wont run the risk of losing your site. There are alot of haters in the CPA realm, your videos will get flagged at a certain point. Fuck it, reupload and keep hustling

    What have I done today?
    Today has been pretty frustrating, I've read what feels like hundreds of threads about about landing pages (WP vs Blogger vs Domain) and I've tried so many themes, templates and etc... All of the different opinions and facts about the matter make the subject seem really complicated.

    After many hours wasted I finally decided to buy a domain, hosting and to just go with Wordpress. I think that for this specific niche having a solid website will help me in some way (I hope). It wasn't expensive at all though, as you will see below.

    I now know that I really need a good workflow/check list so that I can stay on track and always understand what I'm doing. (If that makes any sense) I appreciate all the tips that I can get about time and task management!

    Stats
    Spent: $2.80
    Revenue: $0
    Profit: $0

    Edit: I also have my video up and running now!

    What have I done today?
    Today I got my first lead! :D Haha! Words can't really describe how satisfied I feel :p After I got done with double checking EVERYTHING and boosting my video (Addmefast and GetAccounts), I decided to try commenting on other peoples videos to try to get leads. So I made another Youtube account and created 10 channels, commented on a video and then thumbed up my own comments. After a couple of hours I logged into AWM and saw that out of the 3 people that clicked on a survey, 1 person completed it! It was a lead for $1,35, the best $1,35 I've ever made.

    Lets say that a dollar bill is approximately 0.1 mm thick and the distance between my floor and ceiling is about 24000 mm (2.4m / 0.1). I'd only need $24k 1 dollar bills to stack my money up to the ceiling! So that means that I only have about 23998.65 dollars left until I've completed one of my goals :D

    On a more serious note. After celebrating my first lead for a couple of minutes, I had to get back on my grind! I've already completed my Blogger blog and made it look pretty HQ. Tomorrow I'll record the a video and also figure out more ways to generate traffic other than Youtube comments.

    Stats for today
    Earnings: $1.35
    Spent: $0

    Go for easy competition niches first, that way you won't need to spend a lot on boosting to get on the first page. Another tip is to make multiple videos in that niche (you already knew that). I started this strategy recently, creating 3 videos for each niche and i'm seeing positive results. Always make everything (Video+LP+Nice logo) very high quality with voiceover.

    Never get lazy, even if you reach $100+ a day. I'm speaking from experience it sucks so bad going from $2.5k a month to $500-$1k a month. I'm kicking my self in the ass for going on autopilot and no work..don't make the same mistake!

    Good luck homie
